“Pairing seemingly disparate events—Barack Obama’s presidential election and California’s gay marriage ban— Rohrer explores troubled and troubling histories of U.S. exceptionalism, civil rights discourse, reproduction, and blood logics. In the process, she challenges readers to rethink concepts of time, progress, citizenship, sovereignty, justice, and imagined futures. Drawing on Indigenous, queer, critical race, feminist, and disability studies, this timely resource deftly critiques ableism, heterosexism, racism, and the politics of governmentality. Highly recommended.” – Susan Burch, Associate Professor of American Studies, Middlebury College, USA
